Tyrone Mill: A nice place to visit on a sunny day in Durham

Tyrone Mill

 

Tyrone Mill in Tyrone Ontario is north of Bowmanville Ontario Canada, (straight up Liberty st.)

 The 1846 Tyrone Mill is one of Canada’s oldest water powered grist mills. Visitors can see a working sawmill, cider mill and flour mill, an antique woodworking shop, and apple pressing from September to May. The site also offers lumber products such as cedar and pine for decks, panelling, siding, flooring, mouldings, Hardwood, specialty orders and custom milling.  They also have an antique Pengelum Spinning Wheel and a Quebec Wheel, both of which are in working order. We  “The Durham Handspinning Guild” have been up to demonstrate spinning to the public.

We had a lovely drive up there today. Water was teaming down the mill-race and cars were lined up out front. We bought the usual Hot Apple Cider and fresh little Donuts sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. There are all sorts if other goodies for sale too. We couldn’t leave without a jar of canadian apple butter and some local peach jam. I also got some Pumpkin spice scone Mix… sounds good to me! I highly recommend a drive up this way to see the mill, it is even better in the summer when the wheels and gears are busy and you get to see it all in action!
